Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones said that she declined an offer for a tenured position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in an interview on CBS on Tuesday morning.

The creator of the New York Times‘s “1619 Project” will instead take up a position at Howard University. Hannah-Jones was initially offered the position of Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism at UNC.

“I decided to decline the offer of tenure; I will not be teaching on the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,” Hannah-Jones told CBS’s Gayle King.

The UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees voted 9–4 in a special session last week to grant Hannah-Jones tenure, after initially offering her a five-year contract without immediate tenure. The board first denied Hannah-Jones tenure in May, reportedly amid concerns from conservatives pertaining to the 1619 Project.
